    Default Obama Orders Sequester: $85 Billion In Spending Cuts In Effect As Sequestration Begin

    Great! Let's see, maybe this will throw us into another recession when we are still trying to recover from the last one. This will affect my state especially hard because of the military bases and labs.

    I didn't used to follow politics very closely but I sure don't remember there ever being such gridlock on so many things since Obama came into office and we have this majority Republican Congress. Come on leaders, get a clue!!

    WASHINGTON, March 1 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Friday signed an order that starts putting into effect across-the-board budget cuts known as the "sequester" after he and congressional leaders failed to find an alternative budget plan.

    The White House released a copy of Obama's directive entitled "Sequestration Order for Fiscal Year 2013." Government agencies will now begin to hack a total of $85 billion from their budgets between Saturday and Oct. 1.

    If the so called politicians don't start working together they should ALL be fired and try some new ones. I read somewhere that this is one of the ways the American people are being punished for electing Obama.........by not working with him or each other.

    This is obozo's doing Congress gave him 2 bills already to approve but he's not compromising, also the sequestration is his idea. From what I've read of the 85B being cut only 22b is from military, a drop in the bucket. And then there's this: Click? WTF???
